A legume enjoyed in ancient Persia and Egypt, Fava beans are less well known in America. Often pureed and used as a dip, Fava’s earthy, chestnut-like flavor and dense, floury texture combines well with pungent spices and aromatic herbs.

Fava Bean Spread
Serves 2-4

  • 1 cup dried Fava beans
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • salt to taste
  • ½ tsp. ground cumin
  • ½ tsp. paprika
  • 2 tbsp. chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • ½ lemon, cut in wedges
  • flat bread, cut in triangles for dipping
  1. Sort beans and soak overnight in bowl using 3 times as much water as beans. The next morning rinse beans thoroughly with cold water. Put beans in heavy saucepan, cover with two inches of water and bring to a slow boil. Reduce heat and simmer uncovered until tender (45 minutes – 1 hour).
  2. Drain beans and cool slightly. Peel and mash beans. In fry pan, heat 1 tbsp. oil, add garlic and sauté 1 minute. Turn off heat and add mashed beans, cumin and paprika. Place bean spread in serving bowl and drizzle with remaining olive oil, top with parsley and garnish with lemon wedges.
